florida: The 13th Annual Air Potato Round-Up! - 01/13/12 03:26 AM

Alachua County is known for the University of Florida, cultural diversity, a great local music scene… and air potatoes? Unfortunately, it’s true: we’re just one of the counties in Florida affected by this heavily invasive species of plant that can really get in the way of our beautiful, native breeds. So, like any good citizens of nature’s habitat, we have sought for ways to correct this intruding wrong, and one of those ways is coming up very soon.

Here's Winnie- who would have thought she was so mistreated before she arrived!
Sometimes, good things do come out of bad situations. For example, imagine a horse named Winnie has been found by police to be abused, malnourished or mistreated and has no safe home to go to. A terrible situation, to say the least, but now let’s imagine a caring couple who decide to make a special retirement home for horses just like Winnie. That’s exactly what happened in the case of the Retirement Home for Horses at Mill Creek Farm.

Remodeling has become more popular over the past 2 years than ever before, but why is that?
We all know that the economy is still feeling under the weather, and the housing market has been in intensive care for some time. When things get tough, people get creative, and no more so than when it comes to where you live and how you live there. According to the BuildFax Remodeling Index, home  remodeling increased for the 22nd consecutive month this August, showing that people are spending their pennies on making what they … (4 comments)

Though we’ve got properties in the panhandle, and on the coast of Ormond Beach, our main Emmer HQ is firmly stationed in the heart of Gator Country, Gainesville, and right now the weather has morphed into a beautiful 80-something degrees with a cool breeze and warm sun. With that being said, it’s hard for us to focus on anything but getting outside and enjoying the rich outdoor experiences our fair city has to offer. So, we’re going to start giving … (0 comments)

In the fast paced, race-to-the-top society we live in, it’s no surprise that we often get wrapped up in the “bigger-is-better” mentality. But, in the home, it’s often a case of having eyes too big for a reasonable design stomach. Some recent fads overtaking remodeling and home layouts have proven themselves to be too huge to handle, and we want to warn you away from making some “big” mistakes. #4. Too Big Tubs: A huge trend in … (0 comments)

florida: Property Lines: How to Keep from Stepping Over the Line - 08/09/11 07:39 AM
Be sure you know where your fence, and your neighbors' fence, belong!
Say you buy a puppy and decide you need a fence to keep yourself from being forced out into the rain with Spot when he needs a midnight bathroom break. Or, say this incredible summer heat is getting simply too unbearable to deal with unless you have a beautiful new in-ground pool to lounge in. Both of these things are realistic situations that could possibly get you into heaps of trouble, and you’d never even know before it was too late. How? Because you don’t know where your property lines … (2 comments)

florida: Tools for Schools: Giving Back Feels Good! - 08/08/11 04:10 AM

Oringinally Posted on emmergroupblog.com on 7/20/2011:
Today’s blog isn’t just about the home, but about helping those homes in need. Each year, Alachua County, Florida (where we’re headquartered!) sponsors “Tools for Schools,” a completely donation-based collections drive to help teachers and students for the upcoming school year. Businesses and individuals alike provide new or gently used school supplies that will be given to teachers free of charge.
Many people don’t realize how much money teachers actually spend on their classrooms and students. In the 2009-2010 school year, teachers in the United States spent more than $1.3 billion out of pocket for … (4 comments)
